Hong Kong: Gateway to China is rich with amazing footage of the "mountainous and verdant island," and worth watching in spite of the condescending narration. Courtesy of the Travel Film Archive, the film captures stunning landscapes of the bay, especially the panorama from the top of the island (skip to about 7:45 to take in the view).
